Recharter’s are NOW OVERDUE!

Unit Leaders

Every year ALL registered Scouters renew their annual membership through a process known as “Rechartering”. As our membership is only valid for 1 calendar year at a time (1/1 – 12/31), we must renew each year and this process is vital in keeping your pack/troop/team/crew/ship/post active and eligible to continue operations. Need help completing the rechartering process, call Brian at 806-220-9158.

Annual District Banquet & Eagle Recognition Ceremony – NEW DATE!!

Save the Date, Thursday January 16th 2014!

Our Annual District Recognition banquet has been moved from January 9th to January 16th, 2014. More information can be found on the Golden Eagle District Webpage located on www.goldenspread.org

Friends of Scouting

2014 is here and as proactive Scouts we are already looking and planning into the 2014 year. While 2013 has been very successful pertaining to fundraising it only helps us one year at a time. In order to provide awesome summer program and other Council activities we need to start securing the funds to continue operations for the 2014 year. Your Unit (pack/troop) plays a vital role in the success of our council. Through Family Enrollment presentations conducted your Blue&Gold’s and Courts of Honor, our council is able to allocate those desperately needed resources which are critical to our council’s survival. We can’t do it without your help. As you complete your annual planning and Unit Annual Calendar, be sure to include when you will hold these recognition events and share those dates with your District Executive so that presentations can be scheduled. The Family Enrollment presentation is quick, less than 5 minutes long and will not take away from magic that our youth experience through the joy of recognition for their accomplishments.

In order to keep Scouting alive and well, your help is needed to get your units (pack/troop) Family Friends of Scouting presentation scheduled and completed. Thank you in advance for your attention to this very important aspect of Scouting.
